I will be going to see it again
5 December 2016 | by ladybirdrdSee all my reviews

First of all I give this 10 because a. I don't usually pay to go and see Australian films especially when its showing 45 minutes from where I live and b.it has to be one of the best pieces of Australian film with some of the most amazing scenery that I have ever watched (and there have been many I have cringed at). Well done to the directors, producers and the actors and actresses. They depicted perfectly what I imagine life in those times would have resembled and I am so glad that eventually it was all they hoped it would be. Though I sympathise with families of the victims of the bush-ranging gangs I could not help but shed a tear for Ben and John Gilbert and John Dunn. It is so real to me. From my earliest days I recall my father and his mother telling me about my "Uncle Johnny" and never in mine or their wildest dreams would they have thought I would be (what I consider lucky enough) going to see a movie depicting his short life (Though I really hope he did not have a voice or laugh quite like Koffa's & I'd probably minus .5 for that) However I will be going to see it again and judging by the attendance in the cinema I'm sure I wont be the only one.
